Actively scan EDST information for predicted aircraft-to-aircraft and aircraft-to-airspace alerts.
When a conflict probe alert is displayed, evaluate the alert and take appropriate action as early as practical, in
accordance with duty priorities.
Prioritize the evaluation and resolution of conflict probe alerts to ensure the safe, expeditious, and efficient
flow of air traffic.
NOTE: Conflict probe alerts are based on standard radar separation. Conflict probe does not account for
instances in which greater separation may be needed (e.g., non-standard formations, A380) or where reduced
separation is permitted (e.g., 3mile airspace).
When a conflict probe alert is displayed and when sector priorities permit, give consideration to the following in
determining a solution:
Solutions that involve direct routing, altitude changes, removal of a flight direction constraint (i.e.,
inappropriate altitude for direction of flight), and/or removal of a static restriction for one or more
Impact on surrounding sector traffic and complexity levels, flight efficiencies, and user preferences.
When the Stop Probe feature is activated for an aircraft, conflict probe for that aircraft shall be restarted
before transfer of control, unless otherwise coordinated.
NOTE: The requirement in subparagraph 13-1-2e does not apply to aircraft entering a non EDST facility.
